All quotes are from Del Fehsenfeld, Jr.

"True revival is that divine moment when God bursts upon the scene and displays His glory."

"Revival awakens in our hearts an increased awareness of the presence of God, a new love for God, a new hatred for sin, and a hunger for His Word."

"The 'glory' comes when God takes over. He fills the church with His presence and power. When He takes over, all the credit goes to Him."

"Revival is not just evangelism, excitement, or emotionalism. It is the extraordinary movement of the Holy Spirit!"

4) If you want to enjoy the rainbow, be prepared to endure the storm.
